My Approach to Helping
Facing challenges is inevitable in life, but that doesn't mean those challenges have to be faced alone. As a therapist, I have a genuine interest in understanding your story in a deep & meaningful way. With time, we can work together to help you develop a stronger sense of self & agency as we learn about your patterns of emotions, thoughts & beliefs through treatment.
I completed my Master's education in Clinical Social Work from Wayne State University and continued my education through training programs at The Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute that specializes in psychodynamic psychotherapy. My clinical experience includes working with adolescents & adults of diverse cultural backgrounds with issues pertaining to depression, generalized anxiety, griefloss, & unresolved trauma.
In my practice, I emphasize the importance of having a safe, warm, and accepting environment where an individual can feel understood, valued, & listened to as they share their vulnerabilities to a partner that they can trust. By staying committed and truthful in the therapeutic process, positive change and significant growth is possible & I look forward to beginning that work with you!
